The Bodes have always loved the hill country and the Mason community. In 2001, they built their farmhouse which is located in Pontotoc on Mr. Bode's Great-Grandmother's property.

We welcome Amy Montague as a new first grade teacher.  Mrs. Montague grew up in Zephyr where she was surrounded by wonderful teachers who inspired her to want to be a teacher when she grew up.  She attended Cisco Junior College on a dance scholarship and received her Associates Degree in Education.  She then attended Southwest Texas State University where she earned her Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Special Education.  After graduation Mrs. Montague started working for the Comal ISD as a Special Education Teacher in a Resource room.  After one year she was given the PPCD position which she worked in for 4 more years before leaving when she married her husband Frank and moved to Boerne.  During this time Mrs. Montague attended Southwest Texas State University and earned her Masters Degree in Early Childhood Development.  She received her diploma in May and had her first baby in July.  Mrs. Montague and her family lived in Boerne for 17 years.
 
Their family consists of a daughter Calli who graduated from Mason High School and now attends West Texas A&M University, a son Chase who is a Junior at Mason High School and Casey who is a Sixth grader at Mason JH.  In Boerne Mrs. Montague worked as a PPCD/Pre-K teacher for 12 years with the last 5 years being the Lead Teacher for the ECC program for employees of the district. At the end of that school year they moved to Laredo to be closer to her husband's work for a year and then moved back to Boerne for a year before moving to Mason.  For 7 years Mrs. Montague has been a stay at home mom and loved every minute of it but she has missed teaching.  She feels very fortunate to be offered this opportunity to teach in Mason and thanks God for this opportunity.
